Goldberg Reveals Knee Issues He’s Been Dealing With The Last Few Months

Wrestling legend Bill Goldberg recently spoke with ESPN about his first match in a WWE ring in over 12 years, as later this evening he takes on Brock Lesnar in the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view main event.

Regarding his WWE return, where he cut a promo on the first RAW he appeared on to challenge Lesnar to a match at tonight’s Survivor Series PPV, the former WCW star pointed out that he’s “not a mic guy.” Instead, he referred to himself as someone who “smashes people,” but was honest enough to admit that at age 30 he can get away with just being a “terminator,” but when you’re “one click away” from being 50 years old, fans can accept seeing a “vulnerable side” of you.

“The promo that I did in Denver, I was definitely afraid of doing that because I’m not a mic guy. I’m not a entertainer like that, I smash people. That’s how I entertain people, that’s what gets people at the edge of their seat, not by what I say. So after 12 years they are expecting to hear from me. When you’re a 30-year-old terminator, they don’t want to see anything negative, but when you’re one click away from the big 5-0 I think you can come back and show a vulnerable side. I’ve been a fan of his (Brock Lesnar) for a long time, I was at his fights for god sake. At the end of the day, 12 years removed, he’s the last guy I wrestled, I beat him, not many people on the planet have done that.”

As noted, Goldberg mentioned in a recent interview that he “tweaked his shoulder” during his segment with “The Beast Incarnate” at Monday’s “go-home” edition of RAW. In addition to the shoulder, Goldberg mentioned that he has also had two knee operations “in the last few months.”

“Two. It’s not like I’ve been staying at 280 for the last 12 years either. You only live once, and I got the opportunity because of a situation. 2K brought me to the forefront with the video game again, obviously I’m a downloadable character on it. Special character, then Brock is on the cover, so you know people are gonna say ‘Well it’s fantasy in the video game, lets make it real and Goldberg come back and you guys fight again.'”
